dbo:abstract
  • Willful blindness is a term used in law to describe a situation in which a person seeks to avoid civil or criminal liability for a wrongful act by intentionally keeping themselves unaware of facts that would render them liable or implicated. In United States v. Jewell, the court held that proof of willful ignorance satisfied the requirement of knowledge as to criminal possession and importation of drugs. Although the term was originally—and still is—used in legal contexts, the phrase "willful ignorance" has come to mean any situation in which people intentionally turn their attention away from an ethical problem that is believed to be important by those using the phrase (for instance, because the problem is too disturbing for people to want it dominating their thoughts, or from the knowledge that solving the problem would require extensive effort).

  • 故意の盲目(こいのもうもく、英: willful blindness)は、人が意図的に責任を問われる事実に気づかないようにすることで不法行為に対する民事または刑事責任を回避しようとする状況を表すために法律で使用される用語。別名、法の無知、故意の無知、巧まれた無知、ネルソニアン知識。 アメリカ合衆国対ジュエル事件では、故意の無知が犯罪的麻薬所持および輸入について認識していたとする要件の証明を満たしていると判断した。 この用語はもともと法律上の文脈で使用されてきたが、「故意の無知」という用語は、その用語を使用する人々にとって重要であると考えられる倫理的問題から、人々が意図的に注意を逸らしているような状況を意味する。たとえば、問題があまりにも厄介であり、忘れてしまいたい、問題を解決するには多大な努力が必要だ、という理由から。 (ja)
  • Sob o nome de "teoria da cegueira deliberada" abarcam-se várias teorias de imputação subjetiva. No direito penal brasileiro, ela é majoritariamente entendida como um equivalente ao dolo eventual. Apesar de várias críticas por parte da doutrina, no sentido de gerar insegurança jurídica, ela vem se consolidando na jurisprudência brasileira. (pt)
